Material presented at the 5th Annual Cargo Aircraft & Operations Conference in Italy, 31st January – 1st February 2007 is available as downloadable PDF here:

You'll find presentations a.o. of Airbus and Boeing on the freighter market, current fleets, new-built cargo planes, and freighter conversion programs. You'll also find various analyst's views on freighter financial values.

Enough stuff for a long and interesting thread.  Smile

Quoting Rheinbote (Thread starter):

Great Resource. Thanks for posting - while nothing very new, it is nice to have this much information in an easy to find place.

Of great interest, IMHO, is the fact that widebodies are becoming so hugely important in the freighter market. This obviously illustrate the importance of high-value global trade.

I believe, this is great news for Boeing and not so good news for Airbus. In the next 6 years, Airbus has only one strongly competitive widebody freighter offering - The A330-200F. On the Boeing side, there at least 3: 767F, 777F, 748F, with the last two being category killers.

I think Airbus is leaving a lot of high-value chips on the table from being behind in Freigter offerings and widebody freighters in particularly.

Curious that more MD-11's have been converted than 744's; is it because fewer 744's have been retired from pax service? Or are MD-11's more sought after being not so large?
